“Felt Like a Native”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

This was our second trip to New York and we wanted a more "personal experience." We had stayed at a chain hotel in Time Square last time and wanted something different for this trip. The Ivy Terrace was PERFECT. The location is in a neighborhood -- but not too far from all the action. A five minute walk to the subway and just a few minutes to Central Park. There are plenty of neighborhood restaurants and lounges in the immediate area. The inn itself is quaint and nicely decorated. Our room had plenty of space and the kitchenette was wonderful. The refrigerator comes well stocked, and we walked one block to the Whole Foods store and got cheese and wine to enjoy in the afternoon.

As we are older, we chose the Ivy Suite which is one flight up. We didn't have any problem with getting up the stairs. The terrace off the room faces the street and is a great place to enjoy people watching. (For those who might worry about the smells from the Indian restaurant just below the terrace, this is NOT an issue.)

This is an older building with all the charm and quirks that come with it. It is not the same as a large chain hotel, which to me is a plus. The inn keepers (Vinessa and Jeff) are accessible and responsive to any issues that may arise. The bed was comfortable, the room was a good size, the table and chairs were cozy. I'm glad I did my research and chose this inn for our stay. The only negative I can think of is the fact that the inn does not have an elevator, but they are up front about that and you go in knowing you'll need to climb the stairs.

Room Tip: If you enjoy people watching, the Ivy Suite is in the front of the building. If you want a slightly...

We recently completed our third stay at Ivy Terrace. We normally rent both the Ivy Suite and the Rose Room to accommodate family coming with us. The location is perfect! We are able to walk almost anywhere which helps minimize the calorie intake from our favorites, Patsy's Pizza, Blooms Tavern and the Moonstruck Diner. When you land at the airport and call Jeff to let him know you are on the way the happiness begins. You feel so welcomed and instantly at home. The rooms are beautiful, inviting, and exceptionally furnished and clean. Sitting on the terrace of the Ivy Suite, taking in the city is such a treat. You start dreading having to leave. I truly can't imagine staying elsewhere. Jeff and Vinessa strive to make your stay the perfect New York treat and they do not disappoint. Already looking forward to next time ! Many Thanks, Bob and Sherry Neill

Wonderful B&B, wonderful location, wonderful people! Very, very spacious room for NYC. Great restaurants nearby, easy walk to Central Park, shopping, Times Square and the theatre district. Vinessa very helpful, very easy to reach. We will definitely be back!

Business meetings, dinners, etc. Exactly what a Manhattan business trip should be. But there is nothing better than coming "home" to Ivy Terrace at night. I love the rooms and the privacy. I appreciate the kitchen and provisions. It's a block or so from a metro station, so I don't need to rent a car. This is the only way I want to experience NYC.

This was our 2nd stay here. We stayed in the Ivy Suite, which has a beautiful, large terrace overlooking 58th street. Although there was still a chill in the air, it warmed up enough (50's and sun) for us to enjoy the terrace. Great food in fridge for breakfast, very comfortable bed, super easy check-in, very nice host who was easy to contact. Also immaculately clean. This is a fabulous place to stay in NYC!.

This may be an "un-hosted" B & B, but the hosts have given lots of thought to the comfort of their guests. They suggested a car service which was affordable and very professional. (Cheaper than a cab and MUCH less stressful.) They warned us in advance that the room was up a flight of stairs, so we should pack accordingly. Once inside the room, we discovered it was a good-sized studio apartment, with a basic kitchen (micro, 'fridge, dishwasher, sink, stove, toaster, tea kettle, etc.), small dining area, comfy chairs for reading and watching TV, bathroom, and a nice closet. The 'fridge was stocked with breakfast supplies (bread, eggs, juice, yogurt, etc.) and there were directions to nearby drug, grocery, and liquor stores. Nice linens on the bed and in the bath, with lots of extra pillows, blankets, etc. There was a ceiling fan and a portable heater, so if the temperature wasn't to your liking, there was an easy remedy. Great location, accessible to restaurants, shops, museums, and public transportation. Free wi-fi and outlets for charging devices made it very handy to check online reviews, hours, etc. We look forward to a return visit!

This is our second time staying at Ivy Terrace and this time we stayed in the Greenwich room. How wonderful. You feel as if you arrived home. We stayed for a week and loved every minute. Just up the block is shopping mecca. We loved Bloomies so much this trip we went three times.

As always plenty of yummy breakfast goodies in the fridge. Bagels, creme cheese, yogurt ,fruit, eggs, bread, milk, cereal, orange juice, coffee and tea. There are grocery stores in each direction. We usually eat breakfast and then eat out for lunch and dinner. Plenty of great restaurants in the area. This trip we ate at Tao and it was fantastic!!

We went to the Frick Museum and it was amazing. Check it out!!! We also took the Roosevelt Island tram and what a great way to view the city. Go at sunset…

Shout out to Jeff and Vinessa, as always the Best!!! So accommodating and helpful in so many ways. You will not regret staying here!!!

Room Tip: You can not go wrong in any room. Clean, bright and luxury all around!!!
